Chicken Quilt for Grandsons!

This is the chicken quilt done from the Buggy Barn pattern that I think I probably showed before, but this time it is all finished! The grandboys, Evan , who will be 8 tomorrow and Nathan, 4 had three chickens----but, alas, one succumbed to the terrible 112 degree heat of last week in Austin. So just two in the coop and free ranging now. Hopefully this heat will end soon and the stress will be off.

Had fun yesterday with a friend from Sit and Sew group, Ruby. We went to the Grand Opening of the new JoAnn's Super Store in a town near here. It was crowded, but lots of fun to look at everything. Lots and lots of fabric and other things you didn't know you needed till you saw it!! HA! HA! I got more backing fabrics for the Project Linus quilts on sale which is the way I like it! We had lots of fun discussing things we'd like to do this and that! Thanks for a fun time, Ruby!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

That quilt is just darling, one of my favorites you've ever done! So sorry to hear one of the chickens died - that heat has been so brutal. Glad you enjoyed your day out hon.

The younger has been sleeping with the chickens in a tent in his room all week! :)
